Ice myth sort-of and tank flushers

There's nothing like real science. The guy at TheFitRV.com has some good videos and twoI like best are about black tank issues. In the first he tackles the ice cube tank scrubbing idea. He points out that this was to simulate the build up that occurs when camping hooked up to the sewer and having the black tank valve open. It's not the toilet-over-the-shallow-end or the short elbow problem but similar. The second vid is his test of black tank flusher/rinsers. Spoiler alert: the Tornado wins.


Ice cubes
Flushers

Trying to get it scheduled back in for another try at repairs, so interested in all the advice I can find. I carry a 3-foot snake, and with a few jabs, suddenly everything flows right down, sort of like when a vapor lock releases.
The first time I used a trailor in a campground the camp master gave me a four foot long piece of Bamboo. It was used to push down the waste in the toilet. Now I have an RV, but I still have the Bamboo. It works.

Your rights

Finally someone with some sense here. I canít believe that a house on wheels that is used very little still under manufacturing warranties, yet canít get anything fix, on time, no cost, no issues.
